This week on Nation's Restaurant News, Subway brings back a version of its popular $5 Footlong promotion, offering two subs for $10. The Milford, Conn.-based quick-service company did not say how many franchisees were offering the 2-for-$10 deal, even for its “limited time only” period.

MOD Pizza, which had been the fastest-growing Top 200 chain the past two years, moved to No. 3. Take a closer look at which other fast-growing chains were on the list.
